AIDS researcher Joep Lange, killed in the Malaysian jet crash in Ukraine, was a pioneer of cheap anti-retrovirals for the poor, colleagues said Friday, remembering him as a man of compassion and vision.Colleagues described Lange, a former president of the International AIDS Society that organizes the biennial AIDS conference, as a dedicated researcher and activist for accessible treatment, as well as a lover of books.Lange began his HIV/AIDS research in 1983, when it was still a new, ill-known disease.Lange had served on several public and private advisory boards, had published more than 350 scientific papers, and was chief of drug development at the World Health Organization's Global Program on AIDS.
